Gooney Bird Greene

I must say that I adore Gooney Bird Greene by Lois Lowry!
And my class quadruple adores Gooney.

I just finished reading this to my class last week and this one little story has SO many good teaching points for mini lessons. Plus, Gooney Bird Greene models wonderful story telling!

Here's one teacher's take on all the teaching opportunities for this book.

I've made a packet of activities for Gooney Bird Green and I'm giving away 2 to my wonderful followers.  Enter through Rafflecopter. (Giveaway is over)

  14. My second graders enjoy hearing me read the Magic Tree House series. I read the first one aloud and the rest fly off the shelves! I love Gooney Bird Greene and my kids always do too!
